A Comprehensive Guide to Ball Gags For Beignners


A lot of you probably aren’t into exotic and kinky sex toys that are probably only used by people with a very specific fetish. We’re going to be the first to say that ball gags aren’t for everyone and there’s a very good chance that you’d recoil at the mere sentence of your partner wanting to try out ball gags. However, we say give it a shot before you completely turn down the idea of such an exotic sex toy. So, if you’re a sex toy fanatic with crazy fetishes, ball gags might be right up your alley. In case, you’re trying to see what they’re all about or want to actually go out and buy one right now, we’re going to go over all the basics of ball gags for you to comprehend exactly what you’re dealing with.

What are Ball Gags?

It’s a ball, that’s used as a gag. What else could you possibly need to know. We’ve all seen ball gags used in movies, shows, and most importantly, porn. It’s a bondage equipment used for a very specific type of sex. If you’re wondering what ball gags actually do, well, apart from keeping your partner silent, absolutely nothing. The toy itself is practically useless, however, it can add a lot of kink to your sessions.

What are They Used For?

Well, if it’s not obvious already, gags are used for BDSM. The gag restricts your mouth, you can’t speak, you can’t even yell which adds a certain amount of helplessness to the whole scenario. It’s humiliating for your partner to be in this state. This is something that absolutely nothing in BDSM can replace. This is precisely why ball gags are perfect for a couple that are already into bondage play and want to kick things up a notch. Plus, on top of it all, the right ball gag can look pretty badass too.

Types of Ball Gags

Ball gags themselves are a type of gags so there’s not much to say in the category department. However, if you were to categorize ball gags into types, you’d come up with the following three.

Breathable Gag

Breathable ball gags are pretty similar to regular ones except the fact that they have tiny holes in them. We’d recommend this to a lot of novices like yourself since they make breathing a much easier task. Don’t worry, the holes don’t take anything away from the experience. You’re still restricted in the same way as a regular gag. You still won’t be able to talk or anything, the only difference is you won’t need a timeout every few minutes due to lack of breath.

O Gag

O gags are a little bit different from the ordinary ones because they’re literally like a cock ring attached to a leather strap. The O goes inside your partner’s mouth and doesn’t totally restrict their tongue. Yes, it keeps them from talking, but not from screaming. Apart from that, the O Gag does make room for some pretty kinky blowjobs if you’re into that sort of stuff. O gags come in a variety of different sizes, so do experiment around a bit to see what works best.

Dildo Ball Gag

This is where things get slightly more interesting. Dildo ball gags are 50% like the good ol’ gags and 50% like a dildo. One end going into the mouth in a round gag, just like you’d expect. But, the other end has a dildo on it. The things you can do with a dildo ball gag are pretty ‘intriguing’, but it does add a lot to your BDSM sessions. It’s just one of those, ‘your imagination is what limits you’ type of deal with dildo ball gags.

Choosing the Right Type of Gag

If you’ve already made up your mind and want to buy a ball gag, then we’re going to help you pick the best one for you. Here are some of the things that separate a good ball gag from a great one.

Understanding Your Level of Expertise

We’ve said a couple times before, ball gags are available in a lot of shapes and sizes. Generally, picking up any one could work, however, if you’re truly looking to find the best one for you, make sure you pick something that’s suited to a person of your experience. There’s three possible conditions.

For Novices: If you consider yourself a true beginner who has almost no experience using ball gags, then you should stick to smaller balls. When it comes to material, stick to something soft and breathable like silicone to avoid discomfort.

For Intermediates: You’re now used to putting gags in your mouth and can now start using bigger gags. If that isn’t enough to satisfy your need for submission, you can also move on over to harder materials like metal or plastic.

For the Pros: If you truly consider yourself to be as comfortable with ball gags as you can possibly be, it’s time to move on over to the big guns. Get your wallet and start finding the biggest leather ring you can find. More importantly, get gags that are locked with a buckle for extra helplessness.

The Right Material

Judging by the fact that we named several different materials, you can expect that ball gags are made using a ton of different materials. Choosing the right one is crucial, because otherwise, you’re wasting a ton of money on something that’s not even worth it. First think you need to decide is whether you’re going to be sharing the gag or if it is just going to be used by one person. If it’s going to be shared, go for something non-porous like silicone. Leather and plastic gags are porous and no matter how much you clean them, they’ll still have bacteria remaining something deep inside. Sharing leather and plastic gags puts you at a risk of transmitting STIs. So, if you really want to stay safe, stick to metal and silicone.

Best Ball Gags

You now have a bit more insight on what checkpoints you need to hit to find a decent ball gag. However, if you’re still a bit shady on the details and don’t want to go window shopping on Amazon for several hours, here’s a list of the very best ball gags in the market.

Bondage Boutique Silicone Ball Gag

The Bondage Boutique Ball Gag is our pick for one of the best ball gags in the market. And, there’s quite a few reasons for that. Firstly, it’s a decent gag for both beginners and intermediate users. The toy boasts a 2-inch radius ball that’s made of soft, breathable silicone. The gag is extremely comfortable, but at the same time, doesn’t take anything away from the restriction aspect.

The straps are also a one size fits all type of thing. They’re adjustable to the extreme length and the manufacturers clearly state that their gag can fit heads of all sizes. And, judging by the way they gag is built, we don’t say otherwise.

The straps are made of soft nylon web which offers comforts and also a secure restraint. The toy certainly cares about safety as well. So, in case your partner doesn’t feel good and wants out, you don’t have to struggle with the strap to get them out. Just press the clip fastener that instantly releases the gag and frees up your partner.

  • Adjustable ball gag with decorative straps for beautiful, reliable restraint
  • Inviting faux suede lining feels glorious against skin
  • 5.5 inch silicone ball fills sub’s mouth and effectively to muffle sound
  • 11 hole buckle fastening adjusts between 17 – 23 inches in circumference for the perfect fit
  • Lace overlay and silver metalwork elevate your bondage play

DOMINIX Lip Gag

Let’s turn things up a notch and move away from standard old ball gags to something a bit more spicy. This toy by DOMINIX is an O-ring gag with a diameter of 1.5 inches. The ring is shaped like an O, but from the outside, it looks like lips. So, you can probably guess that it’s so amazing while in use.

The mouthpiece on this toy is made from non-porous silicone and the strap, from vegan-friendly faux leather. You don’t have to worry about any STIs or any animals too if that’s what you’re concerned about. While we’re on the subject of strap, the one on this lip gag works like a belt with 11-holes for fastenings that go from 16 inches to 23.5 inches in size, great for all types and sizes of heads.

The toy does look pretty intimidating and the sort of things that only the pros would dare touch. However, that’s not entirely true. The DOMINIX Lip Gag is sort of a universal thing that can be used by all levels of users alike. It’s mouthpiece is restrictive, but at the same time, non-intrusive. Thus ensuring that the subject stays comfortable even during extensive session. The only sole con we could possibly put our finger on would be the rigidity of the lips. They’re really soft and flexible and having them stiff could do wonders for the toy and make it heaps better.

Fetish Fantasy Breathable Ball Gag

Worried that you’ll outgrow your current ball gag too quickly and will have to pay for another one just a couple weeks later? Well, Fetish Fantasy’s Ball Gag has you covered. This product comes with a set of three swappable gags each with a different size. The three sizes are 1.5, 1.75 and 2 inches. This toy was made specifically for beginners. It gives you the freedom to start off with something small and slowly move your way up to a more intimidating size and so on. The three balls can be easily interchanged with the help of popper attachments.

The balls are made of plastic. This is one of the downfall of this gag. You can’t really use it with a partner. But, it’s not really a con if we’re being honest. It’s just one of the characteristics of the material the toy uses. But, if you put aside this minor inconvenience, there’s literally nothing wrong with this ball gag.

The strap is made from faux leather that can go from 19-26 inches in length. The strap is locked with a buckle fastening. Between the balls and the strap, the Fetish Fantasy Gag offers the highest level of customization possible with a minor ball gag.

Another benefit to add to the long list of current ones would be the free blindfold that the manufacturers were nice enough to include with the ball gag.

Zado Leather Dildo Mouth Gag

We’ve stuck to the basics far too long. Let’s move on to the third type of ball gags we mentioned above, a dildo gag. And what better toy to exhibit this illustrious category than something with a 5.5 inch dildo attached to it? The Zado is a beast of a gag, let’s see why.

First of all, this toy is far from what a regular user would like to include in their bondage sessions. It’s only something that the hardcore fans of gags would like. It’s actually a double ended dildo with the external one being 5.5 inches in size. While the other one is a much smaller 3 inches. You’re free to put the shorter end in your mouth and the larger end in, well, wherever it fits. The dildos are backed up with chrome stud fastenings. Hence, it doesn’t matter how deep or how fast you’re moving the dildo, it will never detach.

The dildos are made of rubber and natural latex. They may be porous to some extent, but the product is free of phthalates. The strap is also universal. The dildos are attached with metal poppers and anything with poppers can be hooked up to the strap. The strap itself is made of leather with a maximum harness size of 28 inches, so it can definitely fit even the biggest heads out there.
